5.0 out of 5 stars Mostly as expected, but you can't go wrong, 7 July 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ORB GP1 Gaming Headset (PS3/PC) (Accessory)
First thing I got to say - I ordered this yesterday and it came this morning, even more so as I do not recall paying much postage for it but now onto the review.

When I ordered this headset after a friend advised me to do so (for voice over related video editing, not gaming which is what this is marketed too) I thought it was going to come with two audio inputs for audio and microphone but instead it works from USB which is how the audio works from. While this is not the fault of the product, just be aware of this if you plan to plug this into a device that will not work from USB as most audio mixers can't!

Audio Output - sounds pretty good and the volume part on the cable works on my PC. I should also note, I use Debian Linux so I can't common it works on Windows but the fact it worked on Linux pretty much out of the box is a big plus for this.

I also tested this on my Playstation 3 and it works fine when I used the RCA spitter that came with it and I am able to hear game audio very well.

Audio Input - While I have not tested this over an online game, it recorded pretty well when I did a test recording using my editing software.

Others - Headset itself, while padded, is a bit on the "I wouldn't wear for too long" list and is a tiny bit heavy but nothing you really would notice I suppose if you was using it for a few hours.
